First the books were moved across the floor to into a corner lining the wall. They are no longer close to the circulation desk.

Second the revamped display appeared with some new fiction books now separated by genre. As you can see on the photograph above the new mystery books are now on their own shelf with a modest-looking black "MYSTERY" label to identify the shelf for the library user. And since I work in a different library department, this change was unexpected for me.
In the previous location all fiction books were interfiled although a small sticker on the bottom identifying some by genre. Today, certain books are filed together as "mystery," "science fiction" and so forth. I like it. I'm satisfied about the ease for the casual book browser--including me--to quickly find a "new" library mystery book.
